SAGA Persistent MMO RTS Releases a Preview of Its New Undead Faction.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Orem, UT– July 18, 2008–

The first expansion set for the collectible game SAGA ( www.playsaga.com) consists of a new faction with 17 unique Undead unit types plus a variety of spells specific to the Undead faction.

This brings the total number of SAGA factions to six, evening out the sides between the Brotherhood (Orcs and Dark-Elves) and the Order (Elves, Dwarves, and Giants); the Order are still desperately battling to keep Goth Azul (god of Death and Lord of the Undead) chained to the Underworld.

Three sites feature exclusive unit renders and strategies on ways to exploit each unit’s tactical strengths:
